Legacy Simulations

Overview

At Sportradar, we strive to make sure you are ready for live games. The live simulations below give you the opportunity to test your code against a simulation of live data being entered before the preseason starts!

Our simulations replay full completed games and allow you to view our API feeds as if they were happening live. Feeds update with game data as it plays. For instance, when a play completes in the play-by-play feed, the game statistics feed updates as well.

Sim Availability

Legacy simulations are currently available for MLB, NBA, and NHL.

Our enhanced simulations can be found here.

If you need assistance in utilizing these simulations, please contact Sportradar Support.
